Palm Beach County might soon be landing its first location for Springfield, Mo.-based Bass Pro Worldwide Sportsman.
The plan for the 6-acre site on the east side of U.S. 1 north of PGA Boulevard calls for renovating the former Carl’s Plaza for retail, warehouse, office and vehicle and boat sales and rental. Several stores are vacant in that area, including several in North Beach Plaza, a shopping center on the west side of U.S. 1 north of Carl’s Plaza.
The new sporting goods store should give an economic boost to the area, said north county commercial Realtor Rebel Cook. “A large retailer like Bass should help the other retailers,” Cook said.
